The dark pipes carry the water supply and drains. The light guttering collects the effluent for delivery into the clearing tanks which are situated under the passages. 33 34 FISH A Q U A C U L T U R E Fig. 6: Detailed view of part of the research installation shown in Figure 5.

They are rotated by a timeclockoperated electric motor, and dispense feed in controlled amounts. THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW TECHNIQUES FOR A Q U A C U L T U R E 35 The quality of the water is decisive for all types of fish farming.

After several promising initial studies by von Sengbusch and Szablewski three lVzyear-old carp with an average live weight of 140 g were placed in a 40 1 plastic tank on 25 November 1964. The tank had a constant water flow at a temperature of about 23°C. The fish were fed regularly with both live feed (tubifex and daphnia) and dry trout concentrate. The results were startling: after 6 months the fish weighed 915 g, 910 g and 815 g respectively (von Sengbusch et al, 1965). The experiment demolished the so-called space factor effect and represents one of the decisive developments in warm water fish farming.
